Tumhari Sulu movie reviews: Vidya Balan may have finally found a winner
Actress Vidya Balan is back on the silver screen with Tumhari Sulu and the critics are loving it not just for the entertainment but for what it brings to the table. Sulu seems to have come at the right time for Vidya who has been struggling at the box office for the last five years. Her last hit being Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani in 2012.
We have missed Vidya Balan, the actress who has flouted every rule of being Bollywod's leading lady. And we won't even get to the part where trolls were owned by the Kahaani actress for their comment on the way she looked. Even before Kangana Ranaut became the face of women oriented films in Bollywood, Vidya had made her mark with films like The Dirty Picture and Kahaani. The actress is now back with Tumhari Sulu and the critics are loving it not just for the entertainment but for what it brings to the table.
New FTII Chief, Anupam Kher, was also all praise for the film and its actors.
Sulu seems to have come at the right time for Vidya who has been struggling at the box office for the last five years. Her last hit being Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani in 2012. Post that the actress did films like Ghanchakkar, Shaadi Ke Side Effects, Bobby Jasoos, Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Te3N, Kahaan2 and Begum Jaan. Her films may not have been unwatchable but they just couldn't get the people to pay for them tickets. Tumhari Sullu is perhaps going to change all that with positive reviews all around.
Vidya Balan is the heart and soul of Tumhari Sulu, but the film also benefits immensely from the performances of the other cast members. Besides the impressively natural Manav Kaul, Vijay Maurya, cast as a poetry-spouting RJ who has to surmount initial misgivings before he mentors Sulu, gives the role his best shot. — NDTV
Vidya Balan is completely in her element, infusing Sulu with an abundance of infectious optimism without being aggravating. She makes Sulu appealing by bringing out the various shades of a woman who has put her personal ambitions on hold because of her family. — TOI
Tumhari Sulu is a slice of a life film which is worth your ticket price. It is engaging and has a massive social message. Don't miss this riveting tale of a middle class housewife cum radio jockey. — Deccan Chronicle
And while we are happy that Vidya may have finally got the film that will spell success at the box office, the true collection figures will be out only on Monday morning. We will keep you posted.Read More
